Jama Narenji is the first single taken from the second studio album from Kefaya ‘Songs Of Our Mothers’. The track sees London producer/writer duo Kefaya team up with Afghan folk singer Elaha Soroor. Drawing on Elaha’s personal experience of fleeing Afghanistan as a refugee, the album is a deep reflection on the experience of women and female musicians in modern Afghanistan, a scathing attack on patriarchal values and a joyous statement of liberation and resilience. This and other songs on the album are drawn from Afghan folk melodies originally  written and performed by female artists with influences spanning from jazz to dub and electronica.
